The Paris climate change agreement, which aims to limit the global temperature increase to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, has implications for industry and investors and could lead to fossil fuel, forest and agricultural assets losing value and becoming ‘stranded’. The panel will explore the risk of asset stranding from the perspective of different stakeholders including asset owners, companies and policy-makers. They will also consider how these stakeholders can use long-term targets and planning approaches to manage stranding risk and contribute towards meeting the global 2°C target.
This event is open to corporate members only.
The event will be followed by a reception.
